OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Law enforcement officials in Texas say Oklahoma state Sen. Harry Coates has been arrested on a drunken driving complaint.

Lt. Rickey Wheeler of the Grayson County Sheriff's Department said Saturday Coates was arrested Thursday night in northeastern Texas on a complaint of driving while intoxicated.

Wheeler says Coates, a Republican from Seminole, was arrested at 10:55 p.m. by police officers in Howe, Texas, located about 20 miles south of the Texas-Oklahoma border.

Wheeler says the 63-year-old Coates was booked into the Grayson County Jail at 12:30 a.m. Friday and released at 4 a.m. on $1,500 bail. Howe Police Chief Carl Hudman did not immediately return a telephone call.

Coates was first elected in 2002 and is term-limited. He did not immediately return calls to his home and office seeking comment.
